I've heard from different sources that L-Glutamine powder is good for healing leaky gut. It's a loose powder you mix into liquid and it's supposed to get into those loose cell connections in the gut and help them tighten back up again. It's tasteless and suspends easily rather than clumping as some powders can. I drink it in plain water. I just started on it so I don't know what the results will be. I haven't noticd any ill effects and I'm very sensitive.
I started on the gluten free diet before getting tested for celiac so I will never know for sure if I have celiac or gluten intolerance. My opinion is that since the treatment is the same I don't need to know. I do know that what I have has been serious so I will be super vigilent about taking excellent care of myself in every way regardless. I have read that going back on gluten to get tested again has made people very sick. I think the symptoms increase going back on gluten after being off it. Others who have been through that can give more info. I do know there are other types of tests available, someone with knowledge about those can fill you in on that.
It's very common to become sensitive to many foods while healing from the gluten, so that's normal. It takes time for the body to adjust. Being patient and keeping stress minimal is important. Lots of sleep helps me tremendously. It does take time, how much is different for everyone. Just know that you will get better as you identify what works and doesn't work for you. It's hard sometimes but so worth it. I'm still healing but have improved in many ways. Keep going and be patient with yourself and try to stay positive - it will pay off!

I have another question if anyone can help me with it. I had a bunch of foods come up on my intolerance test. I am assuming this is because of a leaky guy caused by the gluten intolerence. They were foods I eat commonly, chicken, eggs, almonds, peanuts, beef, tuna, celery, all dairy and many more. So it left me with few protein sources and I have been eating a lot of pork, turkey, a little salmon, bison and lamb. I was told I should avoid all of the foods for three months. Of course when I was at the doctor, it was all too much to take in to think of any questions. But I'm wondering if I would be better to have a more rotation diet, eating the foods I reacted to but sparingly. I just feel like I might be eating too much of the other foods and might start reacting to them. Most of the foods were VL or +1. I had +2 for beef, soy and gluten, no +3. Would I be able to rotate the VL and +1? Or should I go back to avoiding them all together for three months?
